Solid southwest swell to hit Canggu for the start of the Oakley World Pro Junior

Medium size, fading SW swell starts the event waiting period on Sat, fading Sun/Mon. Possible solid SSW swell mid to late next week.

Updated: Thursday, October 4th

The 2012 Oakley World Pro Junior event waiting period will start off in leftover southwest swell that had peaked earlier in the week, although surfwill still be medium size at Canggu. Decreasing and smaller leftovers take over Sun/Mon. We’ll see a medium size south-southwest swell mix move in later Tue and Wed the 9th-10th, with a larger south-southwest swell for the 11th-12th. More south-southwest swell is on track for the 14th.

**Note: Surf size will be focused on the more exposed break, Canggu. Keramas will generally be smaller. **

Swell/Weather Summary
**Note: Surf size will be focused on the more exposed break, Canggu. Keramas will generally be smaller. **

The good size southwest swell (210-230) that the region is seeing today will wind down through the end of the work week and the weekend. Saturday will see still fairly solid leftovers from this southwest swell in the head high to a couple feet+ overhead range at Canggu and some larger sets in the morning (note that Keramas will be quite a bit smaller with the more westerly swell direction). The swell and surf will continue to fade through the weekend, with fun sizeleftovers on Sunday, and even smaller waves by Monday.

Going further out, we have a few swells on the horizon that will affect the comp for the middle to second half of next week. The first swell event will actually be a mix of mid and longer period SSW swells (195-220) which, if the storms behave as forecast in the next couple days, will build in Tuesday afternoon/evening and be strongest on Wednesday. This will be a medium size swell, if the storms behave as forecast, with head high to a couple feet overhead surf at CangguTuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Stay tuned, we’ll have more refined details on this in our next couple updates as we see the storms evolve.
